You do not need a PhD to understand the important aspects of our fluid loss products. The chemical conversion of lignites to achieve fluid loss control in drilling fluids has been around forever.  Our lineage goes back  to the original wells that legitimized oilbased drilling fluids, and the lignite derivatives used then and now. We may be best known for our Ven-Chem product line of modified lignites.  Whether it’s oil based or water based, we have the derivative to meet your needs and can help you formulate a complete fluid to meet your needs. There are many misconceptions and false advertisements about the performance of lignite derivatives and what is really important when choosing the best option.We are here to help, schedule a call to learn about these non formation damaging solutions and how they can save you money.

Ven-Chem 396™ is a chemically modified, organophillic lignite. Ven-Chem 396™ provides rapid and effective reduction of excessive fluid loss in diesel, mineral and synthetic oil based fluids at high bottom-hole temperatures.

Ven-REZ I™

Ven-Rez I™ is a chrome-free lignite derivative engineered with a potassium ion designed to provide improved filtration control and stabilize rheological properties in high temperature water base muds. Ven-Rez I™ is based on a new lignite derived resin. It is compatible with most water-based drilling mud additives. Ven-Rez I™ is particularly effective as a high temperature fluid loss additive in water-based systems. Ven-Rez I™ is water soluble and is not designed for use in oil-based mud systems. Ven-Rez I™ can be used to thin almost all types and densities of water-based drilling fluids.  In addition, it will function as an effective emulsifier in oil-in-water muds and will provide some emulsification and dispersing properties for liquid lubricants. Ven-Rez I™ can be used to stabilize salt-contaminated muds.

Ven-K™

Ven-K™ is a highly efficient, multipurpose mud conditioner for water base muds. Ven-K™ is a pre-reacted salt of potassium hydroxide and lignite. Ven-K™ is primarily used as a fluid loss additive and shale control additive in potassium base shale control systems. Ven-K™ is also used in water base muds to (1) reduce viscosity and gels in order to maintain desirable flow properties; (2) improve aging characteristics in high temperature fluids by controlling fluidity; (3) reduce high pressure, high temperature filtrates and provide tough, thin filter cakes; (4) thin and emulsify oil-in-water or liquid lubricant containing fluids; (5) reduce effects of contaminants; and (6) control the equivalent circulating density by maintaining suitable flow properties. Ven-K™ is convenient and economical to use. It is compatible with most chemicals used in water base drilling fluids. Ven-K™ can be used to thin almost all types and densities of water base drilling fluids. It is particularly designed for use in potassium base shale control systems. 

Ven-ALK™

Ven-Alk™ is a highly efficient, multi-purpose mud conditioner for water base muds. Ven-Alk™ is a pre-reacted salt produced by the reaction of sodium hydroxide with selectively mined Lignite. Ven-Alk™ is used in water-based muds to (1) reduce viscosity and gels in order to maintain desirable flow properties; (2) improve aging characteristics in high temperature fluids by controlling fluidity; (3) reduce high pressure, high temperature filtrates and provide tough, thin filter cakes; (4) thin and emulsify oil-in-water or liquid lubricant containing fluids; (5) reduce effects of contaminants; and (6) control the equivalent circulation density by maintaining suitable flow properties.

Ven-PHALT 427™

Ven-Phalt 427™ is an oil-dispersible, powdered asphaltite engineered for superior filtration control in oil base, synthetic base and invert emulsion mud systems. Ven-Phalt 427™ provides effective reduction of fluid loss in diesel, mineral and synthetic oil based fluids at elevated bottom-hole temperatures.
